It is Independence Day, one of my favorite days of the year. A day we remember the greatness that lives in each one of us when in the face of unimagineable tyranny “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”
We are endowed by our creator with certain unalienable rights that cannot be taken from us. No matter what. Our founders intended to break away from taxation without representation and create something new. They knew they were committing treason but they held the light of their truths and stood with them.
We don’t want to be held captive by any force whether it be a King that represents taxation, news channels that have no objectivity, a loved one who blames us for their heart closing, or our egos that perpetuate any personal imprisonment. It is time to declare the freedom of this time in this moment.
Nobody who signed the Declaration of Independence knew that Democracy would work (and some could argue quite strongly that it doesn’t) but the ideals of Freedom and Justice and Happiness and the pursuit of working each day to get it right are worth dying for.
The Declaration of Independence represents a testament to the idea that while all of us have different viewpoints, don’t always get along, get so mad we disagree and argue that we can come together, when the cause is dear enough and important enough to join hands and walk forward into the truth.
Growing up in Pennsylvania had a huge influence over my development and ideas often without my knowing it. William Penn founded Pennsylvania on the Quaker principles of divine equality of all men, women and children directly influencing the eventual home and spirit of the Congressional Congress telling the King of England to go F – himself. The principles of freedom from tyranny, the principles of a new order for the ages live and breathe in my heart.
This is a special time in the course of human events and we are blessed to be members of these United States of America and when it is time to speak the truth and remember we are endowed with unalienable rights built into our DNA that all men are created equal we understand it is time.
Open up to the possibilities of the unknown. Hold the truth and have it be self – evident! Live from that place in your heart and let’s watch a new day unfold.
Get out there and be happy and make our creator proud.
I am honored to have been born and raised in Pennsylvania and will promote the principles that this countries origins and my birthplace represents till I take my last breath.
God Bless America and God Bless us All!!
Lots of Love,
